City of Corpus Christi Observes Drinking Water Week
Water community invites consumers to ‘Protect the Source’ during Drinking Water Week
CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS - The City of Corpus Christi’s Water Utilities Department today kicked off this year’s Drinking Water Week with an invitation to “Protect the Source” throughout Texas.
Corpus Christi Water Utilities, the American Water Works Association and the water community across North America will celebrate Drinking Water Week by recognizing the vital role drinking water plays in daily lives. Focus will be placed on ways in which water consumers can take personal responsibility in caring for their tap water and protecting it at its source.
“When we get to know our local drinking water sources, we come to understand that it is our duty as consumers and community stewards to protect and preserve them,” said AWWA Chief Executive Officer David LaFrance. “Drinking Water Week provides a great opportunity to learn the various ways in which we can each protect our source water so it’s available for future generations.”
To commemorate the week, water utilities, water organizations, government entities, environmental advocates, schools and other stakeholders will celebrate the importance of drinking water through presentations, events and festivals to provide information on how consumers can understand and appreciate their water.
